Eric was recently awarded a 2 year Postdoctoral Fellowship grant from the American Heart Association (AHA). Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is a major cause of complication following cardiac transplants. The award will allow Eric to continue his studies into the mechanisms of HCMV entry and spread, the results of which are expected to contribute to our understanding of HCMV-related cardiac pathologies. This award is also a major milestone in Eric's career development. Way to go Eric!
